By the way, I am hooked on the Instagram app! Instant filters...so dope! I only wish for more filters hehe. The pics below are from Friday, shared on my Instagram.
I was craving for bánh bèo...freshly steamed rice cakes with shrimp and mung bean paste, a childhood fav of mine...
I didn't want the fast food kind, so I went to a restaurant in Little Saigon called Quan Hy since I knew they had it there.
It's a quaint restaurant for Central Vietnamese cuisine, which apparently is where my ancestors are from (keke maybe that explains why I love bánh bèo, it's in my blood/ancestral heritage!). The entrance has a little indoor pond, although I'm not sure if there are usually fish in it (there weren't this day).
I also grabbed a slice of Vietnamese cake from Van's Bakery, it's a green sponge cake with coconut stripes inside, so simple but so good. Unfortunately, I didn't take a pic of because I devoured it before rushing out for kbbq. Fear not though, for I shall return to the bakery for another slice...because I am such a dedicated blogger, kekeke jk but really though, I need to pick up and drop off pants at the tailor's above the bakery and I am craving another slice. =P
Today I went out for dim sum with some friends at Capital Seafood at Diamond Jamboree, which I haven't had in a long time (today was not a vegetarian day...although I wonder where I can find a vegetarian dim sum place).
However, it was my first time at this restaurant and they didn't make it the way I like it (it was all chopped up inside with green stuff, I dunno, cilanto, whatever). I just wanted it simple and more noodle-y (actually can't you tell I am a big fan of rice noodles/rice flour thingies, I also ate bánh ướt this weekend).
I must have been feeling hella Asian or just really craving Asian food, hehe. After kbbq again on Saturday night, I went to Lollicup for boba, but...it didn't taste that great and seemed overpriced. (sorry Lollicup fans). So after dim sum I had to fulfill that craving properly at Guppy Tea House. Not a fan of their food but their coconut butter brick toast and boba are really tasty. I had honeydew with lychee jelly at Lollicup so this time I got Thai milk tea boba instead.
The best thing about living anywhere in Southern California (or one of the best things) is being able to be outside and enjoy beautiful sunny days. It's so chill and relaxing, I've really been enjoying my weekends lately (even if it's a tease because it starts to get cold and dark early since it's not actually summer).
I did some camera whoring for you...because I wanted to show you my new Inglot lippie! But since this post is already so long, I'll post my Inglot goodies later and just leave you with my camera whore photos. ;)
have I told you how much I love hoodies? (iphone pic)
I'm actually breaking this post up into 3, so I'll being posting more this week! Woohoo, I'm being a good blogger! (Even if I'm currently failing on some of my other resolutions...) Until then...DEUCES!!
(kekeke yes I know, I'm a silly girl.) Kisses!!
